[#19 in General Fiction | Wattpad Featured | NBR Spotlighted]

Rock star Zachary Bennett has just learned he is father to fifteen-year-old twins Lysander and Dakota. As if this isn't already complicated enough, they've just lost their mother, Dakota is missing, and Lysander is none too pleased about having to leave his home - and his sister - behind in favour of moving to California. Zack is determined to prove that he can be the father these kids need, but dealing with a boy who feels that he's lost his entire world was never going to be easy.
  
Lysander Maverick never cared much for getting to know his father - that was always Dakota's dream. But now Dakota is gone, taken by her mobster-wannabe ex-boyfriend, and Zack just might be the key to having her returned safely. This thought is the only thing that Lysander has to hold onto as he's uprooted from his home in Wisconsin, and he's not letting it go. He needs Zack to be the miracle he's been asking for - the alternative is too unbearable to think about.

                              You don't need a comma before "too." It's practically the same thing as saying 
                              "as well," so if you don't need comma before "as well," the you don't need a comma before "too." (:

Yeah, at fifteen we're all still pretty much children---and even fewer of us are ones that have just lost our mother and must move to live with our father--who we've never even met or knew existed before!!! Ayyy.

                              I really like Pat. He seems like a kind of "older brother" figure. It kind of leads me to wonder if Zach really had much of a father figure, because Pat seems to fill the role of not just the older brother, but the older brother that always had to be there for you and take care of you. (:

                              Ouch! Self-blame, one of the best things to include in a successful character. (:

                              I like the characterization this gives on Brendan. It somehow makes him seem like he's kind of 'the sarcastic one.' (:

                              This isn't a big deal, but I would suggest changing "a" to "the" in "a perfect picture of health." I just feel like it would sound better. (:
